When we arrived I was a bit disappointed to see scaffolding around the building and decorators were in. However I suppose there is never a good time to do these types of things when you have to keep the hotel ticking over and accommodate customers. The receptionist upgraded us so that we could have one of the newly decorated rooms....

Whilst the location of the hotel is good as its central, I would not stay here again as the bed was lumpy which led to a poor sleep and I could hear a lot of noise from the road as I was on the ground floor and the room faced the main road.

I was at the Hillingdon last weekend as my husband had to go into the Royal Berkshire Hospital (we are from Oxford) the receptionists were absolutely amazing, they were very kind, helpful to me when my husband was admitted and made me feel like I was a person not just a room number and for this I was very grateful....

OK, so only wanted room for 1 night out of town as didn't want to pay for over night parking and the location of this hotel is prefect if you don't mind a walk, about 20 minutes. Its a lovely building on the outside, traditional architecture for the area, lead light windows etc so was quite excited about the interior....

I read several reviews that were polar opposite about this hotel. The key thing to appreciate is that you get what you pay for & must be realistic. However, saying that, this was an excellent experience. We were warmly greeted, check in was simple & were personally escorted to our room in the Kendrick Building. On the ground floor with...
